A study on the comparison of viscoelastic materials used in phacoemulsification in dogs and their substitute

The effects of viscoelastic materials including ARTZ (1% sodium hyaluronate) for phacoemulsification in dogs was investigated. Six eyes from healthy adult dogs were used in each group with different viscoelastic materials, Healon (1% sodium hyaluronate), Viscoat (4% chondroitin sulfate) and Occucoat (2% hydroxy-methylcellulose) and ARTZ. The phacoemulsification was carried out with surgical microscope (Leica M651, Germany) and phacoemulsification system (Nidek 6000, Japan).
